Welcome to the home page for EY Entrepreneurial Winning WomenTM Asia-Pacific.

As the world leader in advising, guiding and recognizing entrepreneurs, we know that access to successful role models and business-building networks is critical for entrepreneurs to accelerate growth.

The EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ Asia-Pacific program is an executive leadership program that identifies a select group of high-potential women entrepreneurs whose businesses show real potential to scale — and then helps them do it. This year-long program is designed for established women led businesses who are ready to scale operations and become global market leaders. We launched the program in Asia-Pacific in 2014 and selected our first group, the Class of 2015.

Our flagship inaugural event is the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ Asia-Pacific Conference, held in April 2015. Held once a year it brings the Class of 2015 together to meet with a diverse and experienced community of successful entrepreneurs, board executives, industry leaders, and professionals who work with entrepreneurs around the world.
